Dear Ms. Susie Henderson,
I am very interested in the position of Fundraising Assistant with Yarmouth Historical Society and I am certain that I am the best candidate for this job.
I have an associate degree in finance and I did some volunteer work to gain hands-on experience to help prepare for this position. I can use a computer efficiently and I have excellent researching skills with the ability to find resources to help support your cause.
I have the ability to help develop and maintain business relationships with corporations and individuals that offer funding assistance. I am also very creative and I have the skills to help organize fundraising events and other activities that will create exposure for your organization.
I have very good communication skills with the ability to receive and give information efficiently. I am very persuasive and I have the ability to portray the urgency for support needed when speaking to potential supporters in person or by phone.
I can perform the general administrative duties associated with this job such as preparing financial reports and keeping accurate records of all donations. I also have the ability to monitor all data concerning the scheduled events designed for raising funds and to help promote these activities.
I have the interpersonal skills to work as a team but I can also work efficiently without supervision. I sincerely believe in your cause and I am looking forward to meeting with you soon to discuss the details of this position.
